Mothers Day, How will you spend it?

By jdclyde ·
Remember people, Mom is the reason you are here right now.

How will you say thanks to that special person?
A card from Hallmark?
Flowers?
Brunch?
A phone call from where ever you are?

I have a card and a 9 am Tee time. Will be taking Mom out for 18 to start the day off right. (with cart of course) Going to have pick up a single rose too (can't carry a dozen around on the golf course!).

My boys will be with their female perental unit, and I have already taken them out to get her a card that they will give her first thing in the morning.

What will you be doing?

visiting the cemetery and placing flowers on my parents grave. As they were in life they are together again. My Dad died 35 years ago, my Mom just last year. There wasn't a day went by she didn't mention my Dad. I miss them both. Treasure your parents while you still have them.

No appologies necessary

by j.lupo In reply to I wish I could call or vi ...

You are very accurate. The holiday is a chance for us to remember we should treasure our parents while they are with us. That is why I give up a full day to mine to do whatever she wants. I give up a lot of days all year long when she needs me, but on Mother's day I become her "servant". It is my special treat to her for all she has ever done for me.

Reminds me of a C.W. McCall song

(No, not the convoy and CB radio stuff.)

Well, I had two weeks vacation comin', so I thought I'd drive down to Florida:
spend some time with an old friend, date a few girls, make a few parties, and
just kinda live it up again.

So I packed up my car, and then I called my Mom in Tennesee, and told her what
I planned to do. She said, "Son, are you comin' by?" And I said, "Mom, I'm
really pushed for time, but I'll see you in a week or two."

And I was drivin' through this little town in Georgia when I remembered:
today's Mama's birthday. Well, I thought I'll just stop and wire some flowers.
Shouldn't take too long; then I'll be on my way.

So I walked in a flower shop and the first thing I saw was this little boy,
with his eyes full a' tears. I said, "What's wrong, son?" He said, "Mama loves
roses. And today's her birthday, and I haven't seen her in almost a year."

[Chorus]
Roses for Mama
Today's her birthday
Roses for Mama
Today's her birthday

He said, "I live with Grandma now. But I promised Mama some roses, 'cause I
talk to her all the time. I wanted to give her five, 'cause that's how old I
am. But the lady said I couldn't buy 'em with just a dime."

Well, the little fella's story kind a' touched my heart, so I told the lady to
give him what he wanted and charge it to me. Then I told her I needed to wire a
dozen roses to my Mama, up in Chapel Hill, Tennessee.

I looked around, and the little boy was gone. But all of a sudden the door flew
open and he come runnin' back in and he said, "Mister, I forgot to thank you
for the roses." He smiled, he shook my hand, and ran back out again.

Well, I started on out of town. And I was feelin' real proud of myself for
thinkin' of my Mama and really carin', when I looked out the window and I saw
that same little boy, kneelin', by a grave in an old cemetery.

I stopped my car and walked over to where the little boy was kneelin' down. And
he smiled up at me and said, "This is where my Mama stays. She says she sure
does thank you for these pretty roses." Well that's when I had to walk away.

And I drove straight back to that flower shop and I said, "Lady, have you sent
those flowers to Tennessee?" She said, "No, not yet." I said, "Well, nevermind.
I'll just take them back with me."

[Chorus]
Roses for Mama
Today's her birthday
Roses for Mama
Today's her birthday
